Re: The meaning of authorship

My comments on how collaborative authorship gets done was probably misleading,
I realize now: though it is true that not all collaborative documents
require final authorization from all participants, from the practical 
viewpoint for implementing software, it is fine to require all the authors
to endorse the final version--they either will or will not review the
final version before endorsement. Authors who can't succeed with software
that expects endorsement have far more fundamental problems than we can
